Kenosha Man With Long Criminal History Uses Lawyer With Long Criminal History To Sue Kenosha Police

Share
Tweet
Brian Ivy Scott Harris IV (56) of Kenosha, WI
(Kenosha County Sheriff)

A Kenosha man named Brian I. Harris IV has sued the Kenosha Police Department in the Eastern District of Wisconsin Federal Court. In the complaint, Harris alleges that a Kenosha Police veteran officer named Eric Fish violated his civil rights, namely the 4th and 14th amendments to the United States Constitution. The incident and arrest occurred in the early morning hours of December 31, 2021. Officer Fish “stopped out” in an inner-city alley to speak with Harris. Fish told Harris that he just wanted to talk to Harris because there had been some burglaries in the area. Harris voluntarily agreed to speak with Fish and give him his name. Harris lied about his name because he had a felony warrant for Aggravated DUI in Lake County, IL. Ironically, Harris has a felony conviction for burglary, so it is possible Officer Fish stopped a serious crime before it happened. Fish arrested Harris, brought him to the jail to be printed and photographed, and let him go home. While in the back of the police car, however, Harris made some vague threats to Officer Fish. He said that he would catch Officer Fish one day without his badge and that Harris would be carrying a gun. Officer Fish reminded Harris that he was a convicted felon and couldn’t carry a gun. Harris also told Officer Fish that he would be hearing from his attorney, Walter Stern. The entire incident was captured on Officer Fish’s body-cam (below). The Kenosha DA’s office charged Harris with obstructing, and eventually dismissed the charge against the career criminal. Harris is a convicted felon career criminal and has lived a long life of violence and drug use. The federal lawsuit makes some extraordinary claims like:

“The City of Kenosha Police Department has a custom and practice of racial profiling as evidenced by the commission of a Committee to review the racial disparities in arrests in Kenosha County.”

“Kenosha County has had a continual policy and custom tacitly condoning its officers, agents and employees to arrest African-Americans more frequently than Caucasian individuals for the same exact offense; African-Americans are also stopped specifically by white police officers at a more frequent rate than Caucasians who are similarly situated.”

and

“In January of 2023, the Kenosha County Racial and Ethnic Equity Committee found that black adults were nearly seven times more likely to be arrested in Kenosha County than Caucasians. The commission issued a statement that the “appearance of racial unfairness by law enforcement is a serious community problem” and that “prompt, consequential action” by county government should be pursued. No such action has been undertaken.”

In fact, the only known study to investigate Kenosha law enforcement racism was recently published in the Lincoln Memorial University Law Review and the author found no evidence of racism within the ranks, but did find prosecutorial abuse that didn’t involve race. (The study involved arrests for, and charging of, the crime of disorderly conduct.)

Walter Wolf Stern III (77) – Kenosha Civil Rights Attorney and Criminal
(Kenosha and Racine County Sheriff’s Departments)

The complaint, however was written by an attorney, who, like Harris, is a criminal. Walter Wolf Stern III (77), of Kenosha County has a criminal record in the state of Wisconsin and with the federal government. Stern is also a far-left activist attorney. Stern has three OWI convictions and was federally indicted by the US Attorney on December 20, 2011 for knowingly conspiring to commit money laundering offenses to conduct financial transactions that involved the proceeds of a specified unlawful activity, namely, bankruptcy fraud. On June 20, 2012, Stern was found guilty of the serious felony.

Stern, however, appealed this verdict and a federal court of appeals concluded that the judge in Stern’s trial improperly sustained several objections. The court reversed the conviction and a plea was reached. Stern pled guilty to one federal count of contempt of court that resulted in time served. Stern spent 6 months in a federal prison.

Stern was admitted to practice law in 1974. Since then, he has been sanctioned by the Wisconsin Supreme court at least seven times – in 1988, 1992, 1993, 2008, 2013, 2021, and 2022. His license to practice law was suspended once for 60 days and once for two years.

The City of Kenosha responded formerly to the lawsuit this past January 16, 2024. Harris has filed many lawsuits in his life, all dismissed.

He unsuccessfully sued the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department in 2013 for not being cared for properly in the jail. He unsuccessfully sued the Eau Claire Police Department in 2013 when he was seemingly named as a suspect in a homicide. He unsuccessfully sued the City of Kenosha in 2020 for a “false arrest.” He is currently suing the state of Wisconsin and the State of Alabama for child support garnishments being made for the last few decades.

Multiple criminal defense attorneys consulted by KCE indicated that this lawsuit is frivoulous and will likely be dismissed timely.

Sheriff David Clarke (Retired) retweeted KCE’s tweet about Harris’ voluminous amount of mugshots.

  1. It looks like shady Dynamic Duo Entrepreneurs Stern & Harris are seeking to exploit a WOKE Criminal Justice System by winning the Taxpayers Funded Lottery without having to buy a Lotto Ticket.

  2. Why does DA charge them and dismiss the charges, they are not liable to or for anything they do, current ADA Carli McNeil will be an extension of Gravely.

  3. Seven times more likely to be arrested than Caucasians sounds pretty low considering blacks are probably 77 times more likely to be guilty!!!! Let the record show….

  7. Kala says,

    1. You mean to tell me that there have been three previous Brian I. Harris? I wonder if the IV has met his father or grandfather? I am betting he has not.
    2. My life experience in Kenosha has shown that African Americans are seven times more likely to commit violent crimes then their Caucasian counterparts.
    3. What was Mr. Harris IV doing in the alley in the early morning hours on 12/31? Does he deliver newspapers, is he a Milkman, is he in Waste Management?
    4. With such a prideful history of Brian I. Harris’ before him, why on earth would he have lied about his name?

    In closing let me say this, We DO NOT have a race problem. We have a problem with a RACE.

    1. You would think with soooooooo many opportunities to have his picture taken, he would have at least smiled in one of the mug shots.
